HISTORY OF THE ORDER OF THE BATH And Its Insignia

HISTORY OF THE ORDER OF THE BATH 
And Its Insignia 
This is an unrepeatable warehouse find of a now 41 year old publication, it is sold complete with dust jacket.
Second only to the Garter among British Orders of Chivalry, the Order of the Bath was originally instituted by King Henry IV after he seized the throne from Richard II, and designed to cement the loyalty of the knights to his regime. Knights were created in the Tower of London on the eve of the King's coronation, and spent a long night in a vigil of prayer after taking their baths of ritual purification before being dubbed by the king. Published by Spink and Son Ltd, 1972 this is still the best full study of the Order. Drawing on a rich and most comprehensive variety of sources, it traces the history of the Order from its origins to its recent history. The work includes a most detailed examination of the Insignia. Sir Anthony Wagner, Garter King of Arms at the time of publication, wrote 'Mr Risk's exposition is clearer and more complete than previous accounts. Overseas clients please note: Due to excessively high wrapped weight shipping is weighted on this title.
